Well the biggest problem IMO is that people don't get along. I'd help them see the light so that all the petty conflicts, wars, greed that are wasting away our resources could be ended. Instead redirecting our energy to improving the condition of the world as in ending poverty, universal health care for all, etc. etc good stuff.
Actually, that is a misconception about money. Again, this follows the above misconception. In actuality, it's not. Humankind has to eliminate money on it's course. In order to do that though, education is key.
Point taken. But I do see Greed and lusts for power as stronger emotions and a blinding side to education. Maybe more like psychological conditioning than just education alone. Not sure. Some type of development or evolving away from that.
I wrote two hubs addressing both- Money and Greed.
#1) How Greed Can Lead To Selfless Purpose(which lead me to write my most recently posted hub as well) #2) Learn- The True Power of Money(the URL as states something quite different(The Unrealistic Power of Money)
God: Mankind ? hmm, just another species on planet earth right ? Why should i give any more of my time to these species when i have millions of other species to take care of ? Salvation, light, guidance, prayers and all is BS. I don't waste my time to guide you folks, adapt or die in this universe. If you fail to do that then i have thousand other plans to repopulate this planet. You're no special to me. Give me one good reason why you're so special to me out of millions of species in my list ? Love from me ? BS, get on with some female in your species or else get a life
Well, I was thinking two things. ! I agree we are not as smart as any of the others species who don't seem to be destroying the whole planet and all the species on it, but I thought we may be useful if we changed the way we are now.
I'd create a planet where it is mostly inhospitable; 70% underwater, massive deserts, high mountain ranges and ice caps etc. I'd then make smallpox, cholera and AIDS. Then I'd create tsunamis and earthquakes.
Oh, then I'd just chill out and amuse myself watching one in every four children dying before the age of five for the first 250,000 years of humans' existence.
Well, there's no guarantee an omniscient god could do anything. If he simply knew everything, there's no guarantee that he could interact and do anything to intervene or change it. You probably need to make him omnipotent too, if you're looking for help, or guidance.
A truly omniscient being would have nothing to do except watch, any one thing it did would create an opposite reaction - so whether it was good or bad - everything it did would still have an equal and opposite reaction - so it couldn't actually DO anything.
Obviously I'd start with putting a bit more of an effort into solving the old "Why can't we all just get along" question, a few days of Whitney Houston warbling "I believe the children are our future, teach them well then let them fend for themselves" should do it.
After that it would just be a series of blowing things up, randomly messing with gravity and other shenanigans purely for the fun factor.
Oh, and everyone would be supplied with and required to care for their own pet badger.
After all the claims made by biblical religionists that the biblical god is all of the above, none of this god's actions seems to fit these lofty roles. For example, the biblical god has to be worshiped, which hardly...
That's the typical Sam Harris argument. How does suffering negate God's existence? Maybe He's just watching. It doesn't mean He doesn't exist and for anyone to bring up suffering as proof of no God is...
An atheist at a presentation given by the philosopher William Lane Craig asked why, if the holocaust was morally abhorrent, is the flood not even more so? Hitler never favored the near extinction of the human...
